Education

With a range of acoustic, decorative and safety flooring, Itec Contract Floors can provide education establishments with floors that not only perform, but look great too.

The Importance of Acoustics

Itec Contract Floors provides a range of decorative floor finishes that deliver impressive sound reducing performance straight off the roll, allowing education spaces to create an improved learning environment thanks to a minimum 18dB of impact noise reduction.

The Itec Acoustic Collection relies on a proprietary cellular foam backing developed to reduce impact noise. Developed by the technicians at Itec Contract Floors, this unique backing can be found on the Silento Design and Silento Timber collections, as well as Optimise 50/70, which achieves 19dB of impact sound absorption.


Gem's School in Twickenham used Optimise 50 to reduce sound in classrooms.


In Silento Design education environments can choose from nine plain architectural colourways, while Silento Timber delivers nine wood effects ranging from classic oak through to contemporary white and dark looks. All floors benefit from the same 18dB acoustic insulation and are rated Class 33 Heavy Commercial, so are not only ideal for use in classrooms, but also public areas and corridors. Equipped with a Hyperguard+ PUR surface, Silento floors are also simple to look after, needing no specialist maintenance and resisting scuffs and stains. For projects to be completed in a short timescale, Silento Design and Silento Timber are available at distributors right across the UK for fast delivery.

With Optimise 50 and Optimise 70, made to order at Itec’s state-of-the-art wind powered production site, specifiers can select from 41 different options. Covering wood, mineral and bright uni looks, the Optimise collection can meet the unique demands of longer timescale design-led projects. Again, Optimise is rated Class 33 and comes with Hyperguard+ for easier maintenance and resistant to marks. Additionally, both 0.7mm wear layer (Optimise 70) and 0.5mm (Optimise 50) wear layer varieties feature Sanitec antibacterial treatment.

Unlike Optimise which is exclusively available in a two-metre width, Silento Design and Silento Timber can be also be specified in a four-metre width that helps to minimise seams in larger areas, a potential weak spot in any vinyl flooring installation. Both Optimise and Silento are fully compatible with Invisiweld that produces a ‘barely there’ stronger join for improved aesthetics.

With so many options for education environments, Itec Contract Floors can provide your facility with a tailored solution that will meet the individual needs of areas in your school, college or university.
